It’s really hard to find a hair stylist that understands colour in Hong Kong. Blondes tend to have the toughest time of all, with friends reporting from the frontline on fried, over-processed ends and greenish streaks, but us redheads also struggle when it comes to finding someone who can deliver intensity of colour while staving off the intense fade that reds can suffer in the harsh climate. (Science factoid: red fades faster than other hair dyes as the colour molecules are larger and wash out more easily than other shades, resulting in brassiness, not to mention that telltale pink tide all over your white towels!)
That’s where the stylists at Hollywood Hair come in.Helmed by award-winning South African hair maven Rennie Fensham (quite possibly Hong Kong’s friendliest stylist), Hollywood Hair is a haven of pampering perched high above Duddell Street, Central on the 23rd floor of the Shanghai Tang building. The team consists of Rennie’s retinue of creative stylists – including her lovely daughter, Yentl, who is soon to be taking the reins at an all-new Sai Kung outpost – and the huge space is airy, glamorous and carefully designed as a haven for frazzled Hong Kongers to come and beautify in gorgeous surroundings.
